FERENCE AND BERGERON INJURY UPDATES
Andrew Ference will be out with a groin injury, and should miss about 6 weeks. That means he'll be out until the Olympic break in mid-February.
The Bruins are already without the services of Mark Stuart. But now the blue-line will be strained even more. And what worries me is that Zdeno Chara will be forced to remain on the ice for about half a game (he logged 30:35 of ice time in Tuesday's win). Then he'll play in the Olympics, and come playoff time, he'll be running on fumes.
The relatively good news on the injury front is that Bergeron could be back in 2 weeks. He skated yesterday, albeit with a splint on his right thumb. He'll be reevaluated in 10 days time.
